Testimonials

When I first approached Katie, I knew I needed a website but not actually what I needed. Katie discussed with me at length and got inside my head to find what I needed before I even knew it myself. I was delighted with the results which reflect my business and personality completely, and I have had a good response to my web presence.

Thank you for all the hard work, its great to have a top designer on my case!!

Katherine worked with the team as a whole to find out our ideas for the site and produced a detailed plan which took into account both our own ideas and her own. The final result is a fantastic website which not only looks great but functions well and is easy to use. We've received numerous compliments on the site and it's really helped to boost Hatch'd as a whole!

Katherine has always been more than willing to produce work of a very high quality.

I approached Katherine Cory through the recommendation of a mutual friend and have since been so impressed that I would not hesitate to go to her again. As a small start-up business with web based sales, the website was a vital element for me and my products and I was very particular about what I wanted sarahelizabethdesign.com to be. Katherine really understood and took on board all of my ideas, developing them and improving them until the final site looked and worked better than I could have imagined.

She also took the time to make me feel at ease with every step of the process from initial meetings through to training on the websites CMS system in preparation for the hand over at the end of the project. Katherine is always available to answer my queries and has given Sarah Elizabeth Design the online presence it needed.

When we were on the hunt for someone to develop our branding and website we were referred to Katie, and she stuck out above the rest for her enthusiasm towards our project and her affordability. She went on to design a fantastic logo and the rest of the branding material, which is still praised by others to this day for sticking in the mind.

Building and designing a website is no easy feat and Katie used the branding themes extremely well to reflect this in our website. Along with that the website was very user friendly and expertly built. I am always impressed with the way that Katie manages to keep ahead of the game by constantly updating and expanding her knowledge.

If you want a tailored, personal, efficient, and affordable solution to your branding and/or website design then you need to speak to Katie.
